Egypt's Essam El-Hadary now World Cup's oldest player saves penalty

Mohamed Salah set to start against Saudi Arabia as Egypt target World Cup win

However, glory can not be taken away from the Egyptian goalkeeper who made the record of being the oldest player to play in the FIFA World Cup and he had some major highlights while saving an incredible penalty.

Mohamed Salah has apologised to Egypt's fans after their elimination from the World Cup Monday.

"Obviously every player wants to set a record", El-Hadary said before the match and the sick save.

Egypt may be heading out of the World Cup regardless of their result against Saudi Arabia, but at least their veteran goalkeeper was afforded a special moment in the Pharaoh's final Group A game.

Saudi Arabia finished Group A in third place with three points, while Egypt was last after losing all three games.

It was Egypt who broke the deadlock on 21 minutes as Salah latched onto a long ball before lobbing the on-rushing Yasser Al Mosailem to nestle the ball in the back of the net.

Football star Mo Salah scored first within the first 25 minutes, marking Egypt's fourth ever goal at the World Cup.

The celebration was cut short shortly after Salman Al-Faraj scored another penalty in the 6th minute of injury time to level things up for the Asians. The decision was confirmed after a video review and the penalty was taken in the sixth minute of injury time.

Almuwallad had earlier missed a chance to equalize when El Hadary saved his penalty.

Saudi Arabia pressed for a victor in the second half but the game appeared to be heading for a 1-1 draw - which would have meant Egypt finished third in the group - until Abdullah Otayf teed up Al-Dawsari to angle his shot past El-Hadary.

El Hadary started the Group A game at the Volgograd Arena at the age of 45 years and 161 days. The Colombia goalkeeper was 43 when he came on as a late substitute in his team's 4-1 victory over Japan four years ago at the World Cup in Brazil.
